EN272 - Afropean Women Writers

What does it mean to be a black or mixed-race European woman today? This class explores the way some of the preeminent writers in Europe negotiated black European identities and issues of citizenship in France, the United Kingdom, Germany, and other European countries. Topics include: different approaches to artistically theorizing and expressing the emotional, social, and political effects of transnational migrations; cultural hybridity; struggles for citizenship rights; and the intersectional perplexities of gender. Writers and artists explored in this course include: Maud Sulter, Jamika Ajalon, Gisèle Pineau, May Opitz, the Algerian, and Nina Bouraoui. Students will have the option to read French texts in the original language and to focus on issues of translation. (Not offered 2024-25).
